WH responds to Armed Forces Radio 'Dump Rush' petition: No
Rush Limbaugh and Armed Forces Radio
By Bryan G. Whitman, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs for Department of Defense
Thank you for your interest in American Forces Network (AFN) programming for our service members overseas. We appreciate your participation in the "We the People" platform on www.whitehouse.gov
and your concerns about the programming available to our troops.
AFN is charged with providing current information and entertainment programming to our Department of Defense audiences overseas, similar to what they could see and hear via the media in the United States. AFN acquires top-rated radio programs, as measured by audience ratings in the United States, and delivers them via satellite to our soldiers, sailors, Marines, and airmen stationed worldwide in 177 countries. AFN does not advertise on, provide any funding for, offer products for sale, or sponsor any of the programs (including the Rush Limbaugh Show) it relays to its audiences.
AFN does not censor content, and we believe it is important that service members have access to a variety of viewpoints.
See the complete list of political talk shows offered on AFN.
Review all of our radio and television services/schedules.
Again, thank you for your interest in our service members and the programming services AFN extends to them.
Tell us what you think about this response and We the People.
